Venti Quick TL;DR Support Build Guide

Venti Portrait

PSA #1: Support’s job is to make DPS’ job much easier. Pretty much the wing man of the team if juicy damage numbers were a lady

PSA #2: Both Venti’s abilities scale off ATK. This is what you can, and should, see when you slap on some damage

As the God of Anemo, you would expect some hurricane level catastrophe, but what you get is a small, gentle breeze that lifts enemies up bro…

You generally don’t ever want to hold E. Tapping E is much more spammable and great for energy regeneration

If you hold E, the breeze you spawn under you creates a small updraft you can glide on (CAN BE USED TO DODGE ENEMY ATTACKS)

IMPORTANT TIP: YOU CAN ANIMATION CANCEL E BY NORMAL ATTACKING IMMEDIATELY AFTER IT CASTS FOR FREE DAMAGE

Tap E: will create the current in front of you, targeting an enemy and has a shorter CD (much better to use!)

Hold E: will create the current directly under you, throwing you into the air and has a longer CD

BOTH variations will still cause Swirl procs, BUT IT DOESN’T LAST TOO LONG, so make sure you use them AFTER a consistent elemental skill has been activated (like Fischl E, Xiangling E, Kaeya ult, etc…)

Venti gathers all his pent up frustration and literally causes a category 5 hurricane, sucking up every enemy nearby it (honestly it even sucks up enemies far as hell away)

The Q can enhance the elemental DMG of whatever element gets infused, but it’s not very picky on what it picks up. This means if you Q an enemy with an element infused (for instance slimes), the Q will most likely be infused with that element rather than the one you want to add.

A great way to prevent this is to apply your element first BEFORE using Venti Q. This isn’t a surefire method, but it’s more consistent than just simply gambling

As if his energy regeneration wasn’t stupid enough already, after using his ultimate both Venti and his team get some juice back

What this means is 1) Venti’s Q is actually a 45 cost burst and 2) your team member who proc’s the infused swirl gets 15 energy

PSA #3: While you should be trying to cause elemental reactions whenever you can with Venti, SAVE THEM FOR HIS ULTIMATE. His ultimate serves as not only (probably the best) CC in the game, but also a damage buffer! Also his ultimate is extremely spammable, so use it whenever its up

Talent Leveling Order: E > Q > Normal

WEAPON #1 (Recommended for category 5 hurricanes): The Stringless

How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)

Has base Elemental Mastery scaling and the bow’s weapon skill allows for your E and Q to not “blow” so much (get it, like blowing air?)

The burst DMG bonus also affects the constant slashing anemo damage in the Q

WEAPON #2 (Recommended for spamming Q): Favonius Warbow

How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)

Has base Energy Recharge scaling + the weapon’s skill that allows you to essentially turn Venti into an energy orb vending machine

Sacrificial Bow works as well, but at higher CRIT%/refinement Favonius Warbow is an actual energy machine

If you have Viridescent Hunt (BP Bow), it’s also a great alternative if you don’t have either of the recommended weapons

ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for high DPS): Viridescent Venerer

How do I get it D: ? – Valley of Remembrance Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run)

Scales your Anemo damage, but the big bang for your buck is that Swirl now reduces enemy resistance for the element you toss in there. The wind becomes so strong it literally strips your enemy’s clothes off

This is the only time I will ever say that this artifact set is ABSOLUTELY necessary to turn Venti into a late-game face puncher. Literally you will have a “how it feels to chew 5 gum” moment when you try this set out.

ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for early winds): Instructor

How do I get it D: ? – Confront Stormterror Domain (60 Resin per run) or you can steal some chests

Makes Venti’s Swirl proc’s lethal and also helps your DPS/other team members follow extremely well

You can run a combination 2-set Exile + 2-set Scholar for even faster ultimate charge. Or, if you are able to farm for it, Noblesse Oblige/Wanderer’s Troupe sets works just as well!
